So , I've had 6GB of ram on my pc , and I wanted to upgrade , so I bought a 8GB ram card to test if it works before buying another one. I copied the entire text that was written on my 2GB rams (speed etc.) , so that it will be the exact same model just of 8GB , and found the matching item. I put it on my pc and it never worked. Is there something I might have done wrong?

Sorry I wasnt clear, I didnt actually mix rams ,I did remove the ram I had and I put the 8GB of ram alone.
"...to test if it works before buying another one "
And even then you would be "mixing".
Unless the RAM was sold as a set, there is a chance it wouldn't work.


But, to your current 8GB...
Please give us some details on this system and the RAM you bought.
Make/model of everything.
